Paris - Mayer Brown advised the management of the French fashion house Pierre Balmain, founded in 1945, on the acquisition of the group by Mayhoola.

Mayhoola’s arrival will allow the brand to accelerate its development, in particular through the opening of new outlets outside of France.

Mayhoola already owns the Valentino fashion house, acquired in 2012 for € 700 million, as well as a majority stake in the Italian tailor Pal Zileri and in the British brand Anya Hindmarch.

Mayer Brown’s team advising Balmain’s management included Laurent Borey, Benjamin Homo and Alexandre Dejardin (partners).
